    I worked at MakeMyTrip as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-operative coworkers, decent compensation, frequent off sight trips, achievable targets

    Cons

    Not a good place to kick start career as learning becomes narrow, lacks job security as any e-commerce co. does, Customer satisfaction is low and employees face the brunt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Going.Though you guys are focusing on hotels and holidays, air and train ticketing services are pathetic. As a customer I will first make purchase with cheaper products and if satisfied move to expensive ones.

    Pros

    Top Management is very good. They know what they are doing and are taking the organization to new heights everyday.
    Work in some of the teams is good and relaxed. They know how to balance work and also have fun along with it.
    Very good learning as there is a lot of work. Work from home option also available. Flexible timing.
    One offsite trip every year is a nice policy where the company pays upto a certain extent of the expenses.

    Cons

    Internal politics and playing favouritism is so prevalent. People who show off work rather than those who do the real work are appraised and promoted. You can't grow without boot-licking.
    And just forget about ever getting appreciation for your work but be ready for facing the consequences for even a little mess up.
    Lower Management is so pathetic with no people skills at all and don't know how to handle the sub-ordinates. Asking for a personal time-off from work is like a crime. People are over burdened with work and work-life balance is messed up big time.
    The HR is powerless and has no control over Team managers. The managers working from a few years tend to boss around even after such an obvious high attrition rate in their teams due to their poor management. Their strategy is to burden new employees with work till they get frustrated and leave. And the same is continued with the next batch. And the HR just sits back and does nothing.
    Training provided at the time of joining is really insufficient and very short.
    The fun@Work element the company boasts of is nowhere to be seen. Team lunches and parties are so rare like sighting a comet in years.

    Its not a coincidence that the Economic Times Great Place to Work Ranking of the organization has dropped from top 5 to 48 in recent years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give attention towards the lower management. And if the attrition rate in a particular team is high, there is something very wrong there. Also, empower the HR so that they don't just get played around by some managers and instead, could help the employees.

    Pros

    Good working environment and growth opportunities, Leadership is very open and approachable, Work-life balance is easy to maintain because of the convenient and employee friendly time-off policies

    Cons

    Systems and processes need to become more streamlined and transparent so that employees are better clued into what to expect from the company in the long run

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a travel company there should certainly be more travel related perks and incentives for the employees, Better training facilities are required

    Pros

    1. Can bet,one of the best work culture,work life balance.
    2. Friendly people,good management
    3. Quality Work for Developers.

    Cons

    1.Poor hikes compared to company standards.
    2. The company has been loosing its mojo from past few years,dropping down in rankings,increased iteration rate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Salary/perks is one of the criteria you much look at. I remember you paying same CTC(same college,same profile) to a fresher 6 years, You still pay the same. There is something called inflation
    2. Adhere to values you have created,and i must say you have been doing wonderful job so far.

    Pros

    Good Culture
    Competitive salary esp if you include Shares
    Some really smart people around

    Cons

    Some misfits that spoil the culture and add bureaucracy
    Severe lack of parity in designation and compensation for similar experience level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire basis cultural fit (first define the culture ie), that's the only way to hire for the internet.
    Prune people out who spoil culture regardless of their contribution.
    Create more direction in the long term and reduce quarterly focus/priority shifts
